    Local focus for revamped TNP

    MORE local, vocal and social. That is what the revamped The New Paper (TNP) will be when it hits news-stands from Oct 3 with its new urban-chic look.

    TNP editor Dominic Nathan said the paper has always strived to be different, and the refreshed TNP will take this one step further, with its "hyper-local approach, its robust voice and its interaction with readers".

    The revamped paper will place a strong focus on local news, and its writers will be more opinionated and controversial.

    TNP will also beef up its analysis on hot topics, with views from Singaporeans and experts that will be aggregated from popular blogs, social-media sites and e-mail contributions.

    There will also be a new mid-week 12- to-16-page magazine called M, encompassing the latest in movies, music and food. In addition, the sports section will become a daily pull-out.

    The revamp process began late last year and is the first major revamp since 2007. It also coincides with TNP's 25th anniversary.
